God Sees You in Love

God Sees You in Love

Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord (Jeremiah 17:7, NIV).

When God is real to us, we will trust him with both our past and our future. Then we will be able to live for the present. We will look to him for wisdom and strength. Only those who see the invisible can see the impossible.

Do you remember those famous words found in Genesis 16:13: “You are the God who sees me”? Many people understand these words to mean that we had better watch what we do, for God will punish us. But that’s not what they mean.

These words were first spoken by a poor woman who had been banished from home and family and was wandering aimlessly in the desert. Suddenly, God spoke to her, and she responded with gladness and confidence, “You are the God who sees me.”

However worried you are at this moment, God is bending over you in love. You have been purchased by the blood of his Son. All of life’s ups-and-downs are meant to prepare you to live with him for eternity.

Say to yourself often: “You are the God Who Sees Me.” This means he sees all our problems and difficulties. He not only sees, he cares, and he can and will do something about it. Trust him. – Des Ford

Eli’s Reflection: It takes discipline to learn to see the invisible more than material things around you. What are you doing in your life to develop that regular discipline?

Blessedness in Singleness

The single life for Christ is not for everyone. But for those of us it is for, the Lord will give us the strength we need, the love we desire, absolutely everything we need to walk day by day through this life without a human romantic companion, knowing there is no companion anyway that even comes close to the one who is forever. Than to Jesus. Than to Christ. Than to the Lord! AMEN!

When God Chooses Your Life

What if you surrendered your life 100% to the Lord Jesus Christ? Not holding anything back? Willing to yield to Him your plans, dreams, agenda, calendar, time, heart, your work life, your social life, your entertainment life, your romantic life, your family life, your travel life, your sports and hobby life, your housing, your plans, your absolutely everything? Would your life look the same as it does right now? Or would it be entirely different? Or perhaps somewhere in between?

Come Back to Jesus!

How about you, friend? May I ask you this? Have you turned from your sins and received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Is your life truly devoted to Him? Do you bear the fruit of a life lived for Christ? And, if so, are you taking the love, time, and care daily to tell the world about Him? Are you sold out to Jesus? And to telling people the only way to everlasting life is through Christ?
